Meeting Planned to Discuss Bike/Pedestrian Path in East Watertown

Print More

The Watertown-Cambridge Greenway and Bike Path will be discussed at a meeting on Nov. 30.

The public is invited to the meeting, which includes discussion of the extension of the Watertown Community Path from Nichols Avenue and Arlington Street eastward into Cambridge and ending at Fresh Pond, according to State Rep. Jonathan Hecht’s office.

The project has been in the planning for a few years, and earlier this year the Town of Watertown and City of Cambridge purchased a former Boston & Maine Railroad line. The tracks go from Arlington Street, through the neighborhood south of Mt. Auburn Street and crosses into Cambridge in a trench near Greg’s Restaurant – at the intersection of Mt. Auburn and Belmont streets.

This new section of the path would link to the path that goes behind Target and extends to School Street.

Residents of that area of East Watertown have long asked for the cleanup of the tracks in that area.

The meeting will be held Monday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Atrium School, 69 Grove St. in Watertown.
